I have been planning this for a while and went with a sks descent price common ammo and good 100 yard deer rifle I already picked up the 22 long rifle mossberg plinkster and a ruger sr9 9mm want another 9mm then maybe a wasr10 ak since it uses 7.32x39 as well. I looked over 30 30 and 30 06 and for practice the 30 30 is cheaper for practice. But I am new to forum and shooting just trying to participate in some forums.

Tenntyrant,

You obviously have your pistol and small game needs covered. Since you need a medium game-taker if you plan to survive off the land, the question becomes what is the territory like where you will hunt? 30-30 is a great brush gun, and with a scope will do 350 yards no problem. The round is also good through brush. However, a shotgun can cover these shots equally well out to 250 yards with a slug and give you bird-taking capabilities as well as buckshot for close deer and defense. So if you're going to add only one gun, I'd say a good-quality shotgun. If your game is farther away, say 400 yards plus, consider a scoped hunting rifle, but this is based on your terrain near your bunker.

Defenitly a 12ga, i got my mossberg persuader with a pistol grip and the guy sold me a butt stock for $15 and only paid $300 for it. And i got a wasr10 a few months ago for a good price also. I found some surplus ammo for the wasr 10 on sportsmans guide, 1900 rounds for $200 shipped to my door. And picked up a sealed ammo tin of steel cased ammo for $150 with i believe 770 rounds from a local gun show for a storage supply. And 12ga im still looking for a good deal on shells for that. Ive been just buying a few boxes of buck shot and slugs from walmart everytime i go there. And bought some bird shot because it was on sale for 100 shells of #6 for $18 + tax.

I have the pistol grip as well in a 12 gauge and .410. The slugs for the 12 are ridiculously priced at a dollar a piece. I have not bought a stock for mine yet, but need to. It has a lot of kick. I love shooting the .410.

Around me i can get a box of 15 slugs for $8 and buck shot is around $4 for a box of five.

Nice start, Tenn.

To what you have now, most people would add some kind of shotgun.

Then it looks like you would be all set.

Here is a photo of my recommendation on that -- something in high capacity & no sport plug.

crgm101 05-12-2012 02:24 AM

Seems like a shotgun is the route to go would you guys suggest a mossberg 500?
